This mini lesson was a GREAT way to end 2017! Usually, the art class before a vacation is a free choice class for all grades, but once I showed my artists this lesson, everyone chose to make at least one! There are so many references on Pinterest, Instagram, etc. of this technique. I did this with K-4, and the kids loved it! I think it was a combination of loving the process, messiness, and the result!
We talked about the Northern Lights (I even have a students named Aurora Borealis, she LOVED this!), and watched a very relaxing video of the them with the lights off while we made our artworks.
I also threw in a pic of my new rug I received the day before break - once students were done, they played artist memory on it! Christmas in the art room!😊
